David Coulson is a conservation photojournalist whose work focuses on examining the complex, fraught and indivisible relationships between people and planet. He has covered endangered turtles in Ontario, followed the migration of porcupine caribou in Alaska, and journeyed to the disappearing jungles of Indonesia where orangutans are dramatically in decline. Believing that the camera can be a tool for understanding and awareness, David aims to reveal our profound connections to the earth, our shared home, and the urgent need to protect it.
Along with a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Environmental Studies and Philosophy from Queen’s University, he holds a post graduate in Environmental Visual Communication from Fleming College and the Royal Ontario Museum, and a UAV Pilot Ground School certificate from Humber College.
David is based in Toronto, Canada and is available for editorial, reportage and travel assignments worldwide.
